Great bus tour! Th driver was funny but didn't talk to much. The Loch Ness Boat tour was a bit of a let down since it was only 1 hour long. However they did have live sonar on screens so that was interesting.

It was nice bus trip. Distillary tour was interesting. Packed lunch arrangements are really worth. Lachness boat ride and the scenary are not perfect examples for beautiful nature.

One of the most amazing trips I've ever had. The driver and the narrator in one of us had a lot of information he gave very credibly. We saw a great deal of this beautiful country thanks to its willingness and liveliness. We recommend our friends and not only them.

My family and I had a wonderful time on the Hairy Coo Bus. The scenery was amazing, the narrative by our bus driver, Michael, was interesting and informative, and I highly recommend taking the Loch Ness Boat ride. Although I won't promise you a sighting of Nessie, I can guarantee beautiful scenery.

Our driver Mark was very entertaining and informative, and made the long day seem not so long! We packed in a lot in 12 hours in a very enjoyable way. Glencoe was moody and magnificent, with just enough weather to intensify the effect, the trip on the Loch was great despite not seeing any obvious monsters, and we were lucky... More

My husband and I booked a day trip with Ness Bus and went from Edinburgh to Loch Ness last week. Our driver/tour guide was Michael. Michael knew lots of historical information about the surrounding areas that we drove through. Having Scottish heritage myself, I was very interested in the historical aspects of the reign and enjoyed listening to the stories... More

Made it all the way to Loch Ness and took the optional one hour boat trip. Great way to see a lot of Scotland in a short period of... More

We took a family trip to Scotland in May 2017. We went on a Ness bus tour on May 15th. Our tour guide and driver was Mark. He was very informative and entertaining. He gave loads of information and was quite funny! We brought our two young sons, the youngest being Autistic. Mark was so kind and understanding towards him... More
